  1. This was soo good. Double the veggies and seasoning and you are good to go!

  2. Glad you liked it, and thanks for sharing your tips. I'll have to try that when I make it again.

  3. I knew that I needed to double the veggies when I saw the Mr. picking them all out, lol. I have also tried this over Cilantro Lime rice (from Skinnytaste) made with brown rice and it was superb!

  4. Holy Guacamole! You can make fajitas in a slow cooker??? Sign me up!

  5. Donna, they're really good. They don't quite have that "sizzled on a hot pan" thing going on, but still excellent.

  6. I have made many recipes from your site and loved them all. I am sad to say this was the first bomb. It turned out a big, soggy pile of food. The chicken was dried out and the rest was watery and without much flavor. Any ideas what might have caused this? I haven't had any major problems with this slow cooker before so I don't think that was the problem..

  7. Al honestly, I have no idea why it didn't turn out for you. I've made this many times myself with good results and there are lots of good reviews on the original recipe at my site. Are you sure you followed instructions and cooking times as written?
